Bleep Launch Fast Bar Solution at Major Summer Festivals

This past weekend, Bleep UK PLC installed a pop-up EPOS and Payments solution throughout the fast service bars and hospitality establishments at the 2018 Download Festival.

This was on behalf of Central Fusion, who are the market leaders in festival catering and bar solutions. In total, over 100 Bleep TS-810 EPOS terminals were installed throughout the site, each with built-in receipt printers, laser scanners, customer facing video displays and all directly integrating to an Ingenico payment device for fast and effective card transactions. This was all then linked to Fusion’s own bespoke Web Back Office for full sales reporting and stock control from Bleep’s cloud-based management software.

The majority of the EPOS terminals were within the bar areas set up across the festival site. The bars catered to a variety of styles, from large-scale, fast service bars, to those in the prestigious VIP areas and others catering to more niche tastes, like real ale and cocktail bars.

The install at Download Festival also included 16 EPOS terminals for a pop-up, on-site Co-op retail store for all festival-goers essentials. This mini-supermarket was a brand-new feature for this year, located right in the heart of the festival community, selling a range of food, water, beer, wine and toiletries.

Speed of service, secure payments and the ability to provide real time, accurate sales reporting were all key factors as to why the Bleep Event solution was selected across all operational areas.

Ross Weszka, Group Marketing Manager of Bleep stated, “It was a great privilege to be selected as the provider for the UK’s biggest and best rock music festival. What is even more pleasing is that our Event EPOS and Payment solution was more than up to the task, as we head into a hectic few months of music festivals and sporting events.”

“More and more festivals and event organisers are now waking up to the benefits of all-in-one EPOS and Payment solutions. We are the undisputed leaders when it comes to temporary and pop-up EPOS and Payment solutions for the biggest and best events.”

This marks the start of another busy summer of large-scale events for Bleep, which will see EPOS and Payment solutions deployed at events such as Royal Ascot, The Open, Wimbledon, the Tour de France and leading major music festivals over the coming months.
